Caroline and Eli's Sweet Music Video Proposal

How We Met

Caroline and I met during the cold January of 2014 In Dallas, TX on campus at Dallas Baptist University in the International Office where I worked and attended college.  I remember thinking to myself, “God, THAT is what I want my wife to look like some day.”  Little did I know, I was looking at her.  I soon had to slap myself back to professional mode and get back to work..

We immediately hit it off becoming friends, and became nothing short of best friends throughout the year.

December rolled around and it was time for Caroline to move back to Brazil.  It was hard, but I knew I would be seeing her fairly soon, as I had plans to visit Brazil that following February 2015 to speak and sing at a conference retreat and other places.  Needless to say, we spent many long hours on Skype and FaceTime.

When we met in the airport on my arrival, I was done.  She looked good.  She smelled good.  She was perfect.  The trip marked the course of our friendship becoming a relationship and I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her by the time I had to return to the states.

How He Asked

Caroline had plans to visit in July, the perfect amount of time for me to prepare my surprise proposal, which just so happened to be on her birthday.  I wanted to do something different, something no one has done before and that could not ever be duplicated in the same way.  I decided I would write a song only for her, get a band together, record and film it live, and make a music video that we can look back on and cherish for the rest of our lives.
